Personal Quotes (4)

At first, I didn't like coming down to Los Angeles at all. It's like everything's black and white compared to where I live out in the middle of nowhere. There's like 400 people in my town!
[His hair for the movie The Pacifier (2005)] "They bleached it a ton of times for the movie, I'm surprised I still have hair left!"
[about seeing himself in the movies] It almost seems like it's not really me. If you screw up, you see the tiniest little mistake that no one else will see. You'll totally be like, 'Wow, that sucks, I hope nobody else notices!'
I don't like going to dinner by myself, I'll call for delivery before I do that. It's awkward if you're at a table all alone. I'm sure nobody even notices, but there's something about it.
